I love D'Ambrose's use of stark imagery, which clashes strong diagonal, horizontal, and vertical lines together to create a harsh and direct mise-en-scene. This is a film that to me is about a lack of control. A man, clearly without much direction in life, goes through the motion while life happens to him. The woman he speaks to stops talking to him and the kindly couple (that he may or may not be related to) die in a freak plane crash. I didn't love the narration at the end, as it to me broke the impact of his silence throughout the film and particularly there. There's a lot going on here and I really like a lot of it.
